Chennai: The self-styled godman Nityananda made a startling revelation to the investigating officials that he “is not a man. There’s no way I could have indulged in sexual activities with women. Do a potency test on me”. However his passport clearly mentions that his gender as male, not transgender. It is believed to be a ploy by Swami to mislead the CID team, which probes the case.
Actress terms video clippings malicious
In her first comments after being embroiled in an alleged sex scandal involving self-styled godman Nityananda, South Indian actress Ranjitha today termed as “malicious” the video clips telecast by some TV channels purportedly showing her in intimate positions with him.
Ranjitha’s Delhi-based legal consultant PM Law Chambers (PMLC) said she has also issued notices to online service providers Google and YouTube, asking them to remove the video clips from their portals within 72 hours ending May 2, failing which “appropriate action” would be taken against them as it amounted to defamation.
“Our client dissociates herself from the said video which has caused danger to her life, limb and property,” the statement from PMLC said.
PMLC denied the actress gave any media interviews on the alleged scandal and said she had not made any statement before the Bangalore CID, which is questioning Nityananda, arrested on various charges including rape.
“The authenticity and originality of the alleged person featuring in the video taken clandestinely has to stand the test of admissibility before being treated as evidence in the Courts of Law,” it said.
“The video clips, which clearly amount to gross violation of various laws of India, have malicious, diabolical and destructive intent, and are clearly aimed at bringing harm to the actress,” it said.
